Conversations About Conservation
October 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
Topic: “Urban Wildlife”
Join our series of informal, two-way conversation about important issues of the day relating specifically to the Upper Sugar River Watershed. Expert speakers provide 20 minutes of opening remarks, then the floor is open for questions. In October, Professor David Drake will talk about wildlife in urban areas, including current research being done to track coyotes around the UW-Madison campus.
This series of conversations are always free, fun and open to everyone! We hope you’ll join us at Wisconsin Brewing Company for Conversations About Conservation, but if you can’t join us in person, you can still watch the show and ask questions through Facebook Live on the Upper Sugar River Watershed Association Facebook Page.
